Eric Prydz stands alone in his ability to mix commercial success with underground notoriety. With his labels, Pryda and Mouseville he has been acknowledged by Beatport as one of their biggest selling artists of all time. Both are held in the highest regard by an adoring underground scene and have allowed Prydz to remain something of an enigma while being a household name.
Since his arrival, Eric Prydz has inadvertently broken into uncharted territory for dance music. Festivals, events and venues across the planet have rocked to his performances, safe in the knowledge that they're witnessing something special. In 2011, Eric launched his innovative new show concept, "EPIC," at London's O2 Academy Brixton to a sell out audience. This special show features exclusive cutting edge production, 3D holographic video projection and lighting systems. Coupled with Eric's rousing music it is a ground breaking audio and visual feast.
Eric Prydz's releases and forward-thinking live shows have allowed him to achieve worldwide recognition with his integrity intact. Now signed to Astralwerks Records, Eric Prydz has started working on his much anticipated debut artist album, due for release late 2012.
However before this, Astralwerks will be releasing two complete packages under the Pryda guise, Eric Prydz Presents Pryda, on May 22. These two products will be offered as both a single CD of rare, unreleased tracks AND a deluxe 3-CD set of those unreleased tracks plus a DJmixed retrospective of tracks originally released on Prydz's acclaimed boutique label. Of The deluxe 3-CD set, Disc 1 will be made up of new unreleased Pryda productions which some fans may have heard as works in progress (including "Shadows," "Agag," "Mighty Love" and "Allein.") Discs 2 and 3 bring together many of the classic tracks from the Pryda catalogue, sequenced and mixed by Eric himself, and including some of his special re-edits. Pryda has become a genre-defining stable and is one of the most successful and influential dance labels in the world. This compilation album rounds up an incredible chapter in Eric's career so far, laying the foundations for the next exciting phase.
